I'm hoping someone can give me the head diameter and head thickness of the 7 screws which hold the instrument panel onto the petrol tank of the 1930's petrol tanks.
I can measure them but I do know Russell Motors had them in stock. Apparently they are also used on lesser machines (Matchless). It's pouring with rain...
1/2" diameter and 1/8" tall.
Seems very unusual dimensions ?
Thanks David. Greatly appreciated. I can now get down to business and turn up a batch.
That's how mine looked. Not saying it was original....
Same dimensions as David gave.
I still have some old screws. They are identical.
Next question is the panel colour. Early ones seem to have been black with red lines. I am fairly sure later ones (1936×?) were dull chrome. But I think (but not sure) they had black rims and a red coach line inside it and almost overlapping the screws. Very difficult to find pictures looking down on any bikes.
